This is another in my series of rhyming word ladders. This one is a little more challenging than the others -- most people will probably have to work forwards and backwards to get all ten words. (At least, that was the goal when making the puzzle.)

Find all ten words referenced in this bit of verse.

The first one is a giant ship,
though it never saw a port.
Prepend one letter onto that
to make a covering, of a sort.

Replace the final letter:
a place that beasts might bed.
Swap middle two, insert an I
to find what's in your head!

Change B to G and then you'll make
something from a farm.
Move first to last, insert a K:
a workout for your arm.

Add C and C, and then you'll see
what walnuts fear from you.
Drop A-C-K and add an E:
what a fearful one might do.

Dump outer two, move last to first,
and have a little smile.
Delete the R and then you'll make
a beverage some find vile.
